Stop the Impeachment of Kathleen Kane

Representative Daryl Metcalfe is at it again. Now he is introducing legislation to impeach Attorney General Kathleen Kane because she refused to waste taxpayer dollars defending the discriminatory, hurtful law that denies the freedom to marry to committed same-sex couples.

Will you sign our petition to tell Rep. Metcalfe to back off?

Attorney General Kane is fulfilling her sworn duty to uphold the Constitution. In June, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) because it’s unconstitutional. Kane believes — and so do we — that our state’s version of DOMA is unconstitutional and just plain wrong.

But Representative Metcalfe is trying to impeach Kane. Perhaps, he doesn’t understand that the Supreme Court is the last word on the law, or maybe he’s confused about our Attorney General’s responsibilities to the constitution. More likely, he is so dead set against LGBT families in PA, he is willing to eliminate any allies who stand up for our rights.

Metcalfe is wrong, and he is out of step with the majority of Pennsylvanians who support the freedom to marry for all couples.

Click here to tell Metcalfe to withdraw his bill to impeach Kathleen Kane — and focus on doing work that matters to the people of Pennsylvania.

Citizens of the commonwealth have serious issues to deal with, and the last thing we need is for the State Legislature to waste time on an impeachment of an elected official who is just doing her job.
